Does the withdrawal working fine with transfer to local bank like state bank from India ? as the lockdown is going on in India, most of the banks are closed, so is it good to withdraw money from Upwork to get it transfer in local bank ?
Yes the Direct to Local Bank transfer is working absolutely fine. I transferred my earnings to my SBI account during the ongoing nationwide lockdown here in India and it showed up in my bank account within ONE day. I was actually surprised because normally it takes 2-5 days to show up in the recipient's bank account after Upwork processes the payment request.
Please keep in mind that It can take between 2 to 5 business days for the funds to be loaded on your bank account. If you have not received the funds after 8 business days let us know, and our team will initiate a trace on your transaction. Thank you!
